As much as I love my Twitter feed, I rarely partake in socially oriented posting. Instead I engage what I like to call “selfish social media.” I use my Twitter feed almost exclusively as a log of my past favorite reads, particularly online articles, but sometimes posting books too.
It turns into an interesting timeline, revealing author or topic binges, patterns of interest, and bursts of reading activity and hibernation. I love looking back. So cheers to 2018 and all its teachings (even if I’m posting this three months late) 🥂
